Built in 1906, Manhattan Center has been part of New York City's cultural makeup for more than 100 years. Housed within this historical gem are two beautiful venue spaces: The Hammerstein Ballroom and The Grand Ballroom. In the 1990s, two recording studios were added, along with two television studios. Both venues are tie-lined to state-of-the-art television control rooms and recording studios. All events can be broadcast live or recorded for later broadcast.
